The Banting diet is a great way to reduce your weight. It allows you to lose 3 pounds of excess weight per week without harming your health. This diet was created by British businessman William Banting in the late 19th Century. When he was about 60 years old, he started putting on weight.

Treatment in salt baths, air procedures and following various diets did not bring him a positive result. So he made his own diet plan and lost 60 pounds with it.

This diet is similar to the paleo diet, except that dairy products are allowed. The goal of the diet is to accelerate fat burning to get energy. Below you will see a healthy diet menu for 7 days which includes 4 meals.
